It can be challenging to understand a statist speak on morality. We hear of hate-crime legislation, but curiously we don't hear of love-crime legislation.
Sometimes the incoherent moral ramblings of multiculturalism can make me yearn for a drink. Case in point, multiculturalism tells us, "It's all good." But if it's all good, there can be no evil. And if there cannot be evil, then there cannot be good.
Perhaps, then, the real meaning of "It's all good" is that all statism is good. You know, homosexual statism, Buddhist statism, socialist statism, abortionist statism, Islamic-appeasement statism, welfare statism ...
I also understand that our multicultural phrase employs a bit of hyperbole. While the multicultural statists don't like to address the exceptions to the good-statism rule, a couple of statists who would at least be thrown to the back of the bus – if not evicted altogether – would be the ex-homosexual statists and the scientific antievolutionary statists.
But where is the balance? The yin and yang? Amidst all this statist morality-speak, we don't hear much on celebrating hate. We need to elevate our moral horizons to include some judicious hate.
What is at the heart of evil in our world, and how do we lessen its power in our own lives? Check out David Kupelian's newest book, "How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming America"
Could it be true that – sappy and gushy feel-goodisms aside – we can only truly love someone to the extent that we hate the bad and evil turns by which human nature may entreat him?
Here are nine examples of hate groups that can enrich any neighborhood:
Hatred for drunk driving. How can one deny that MADD is a wonderful hate group?
Hatred for crime. Don't you appreciate those neighborhood watch stickers identifying another friendly neighborhood hate group?
Hatred for obesity and junk food. Ahh. Can you imagine attending a monthly local meeting where people bring select nutritious food, discuss the dangers of consuming supermarket items with 16 or more unpronounceable ingredients and listen to speakers correlating nutrition with increased longevity and elevated happiness?
Hatred for a political culture that betrays its beautiful genesis, from the "self-evident" idea that "all men are created equal" to a multiculturalism that turns a blind eye to honor killings, vigilante death for apostasy ("There is no indemnity for killing an apostate [neither is there] any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die"), sexual subjugation of non-Muslims and jihad as it celebrates Islam. This friendly neighborhood hate group teaches Muslims, the media and politicians about the enduring Quranic sanction of apartheid and genocide. This hate group goes out of its way to befriend Muslims and to tell them gently the truth about the Islamic belief system.
Hatred for unnatural and perverse sexualities. What if the average shortening of one's life due to homosexual behavior was four times greater than that due to obesity and poor diet, or three times greater than that due to heavy smoking? Would that be grounds to attach the "perverse" or "unnatural" label to some sort of consensual adult sexual activity? Further, what if the pathological demographic indices – violent crime, suicide, depression, pedophilia – further correlated with increased acceptance of homosexuality? Would it be love toward the individual considering such a lifestyle, or would it be hate? Wouldn't it be necessary to hate sexual perversity in order to truly love people considering it?
Hatred for the deflating of economic dreams caused by a political culture convincing the poor that – given faux-racism and faux-social-injustice – crime or public dependency (i.e., state-sanction theft) are more realistic career choices than setting sail in the free market as a creator of goods or services that benefit others.
Hatred for an educational paradigm that replaces inspiration with drudgery and reading and discussing the classics with busywork.
Hatred for economic policies like fiat currency with its gravitation toward inflation. Inflation adds risk to contracts that extend over time and therefore retards the creation of wealth. Likewise, overregulation prevents businesses from developing and providing the economy with more wealth and more jobs.
Hatred for a political culture that opposes individual wealth creation. We can all understand the folly of equalizing the playing field by saddling a basketball player like Michael Jordan with concrete shoes. Instead of this "social justice" stunt, wouldn't it be a kinder thought that celebrates Jordan's personal achievements? Didn't Jordan elevate the entire game for all? Shouldn't, then, we likewise lionize the great individual entrepreneurs who create nearly all the wealth in our economy? As Adam Smith wrote, it is the economic successes of other countries that aid in our own country's success. The same call for wealth celebration applies on an individual level. Let's resist the eye of envy and the base impulse of class warfare.
Hating evil is the key to loving people. Consistent with a loving American citizen is hating drunk driving, hating crime, hating a diet of junk food, hating the betrayal of American legal equality to Islamic apartheid, hating sexual perversities, hating the destruction of economic dreams, hating the replacement of inspiration with drudgery in education, hating the vicissitudes in value of our currency and hating a political culture that opposes individual economic success.
It is past time to stop with the toady faux-love of statist multiculturalism. It is time for the real deal. So please, hate well in order to love well.
All this wonderful hate brings moral clarity to my soul and has got my patriotic juices going. I'm trying to start at least one such hate group. How about you?
